Python Regular Expressions in Python Introduction to Regular Expressions Players Dictionary and Class

regular expression last code challenge

Wow! OK, now, create a class named Player that has those same three attributes, last_name, first_name, and score. I should be able to set them through init.

import re

string = '''Love, Kenneth: 20
Chalkley, Andrew: 25
McFarland, Dave: 10
Kesten, Joy: 22
Stewart Pinchback, Pinckney Benton: 18'''
players = re.search(r'(?P<last_name>[a-zA-Z ]+),\s(?P<first_name>[A-Za-z ]+):\s(?P<score>\d+)',string,re.M|re.X)

It took me a while to figure this one out but you're pretty close.

players = re.match(r'''(?P<last_name>[\w ]*),\s(?P<first_name>[\w ]*):\s(?P<score>[\d]*)'''
                   , string, re.X|re.M)
